Getting crafty for the first birthday...

Motherhood has changed my life to say the least. I've truly dedicated the past year to baby related things you know the common Colic, Reflux, Sleepless Nights, Teething, Post Immunization Fevers ( I'm sure many of you have been there and done that and will do that again) haha but ofcourse I did throw in a lot of baby fun activities such as going to Gymbaroo and swimming and mothers group and playgroup into the mixture just to make my life all the bit more yippie yay or should I say ( Crazeee)! Despite all of the craziness , having Omar around has brought so much joy to my life ( taking the advise of many who told me to enjoy these baby days), which is the reason behind my disappearance from this blog. I now know that motherhood is the toughest job on earth as it requires not 100 but 1000 % of your undivided attention.I'm sure all you mothers out there share my sentiment.

I have missed making pretty things but am slowly getting back in gear with my crafting now that the little one is more settled. I got my arty farty brain and hands working a few weeks ago to celebrate his first birthday. I can't believe my little prince is now One, walking, loves rummaging through my pantry and is able to say the word Star! So so proud of his achievements.

Without futher a do, here are a few pictures from his birthday. Because mummy is a little pattern crazy, I decided to go with spots and stripes with the colours red and blue in mind. I found some lovely accessories from the paper eskimo range too. I blew balloons to match and made lots of food and baked a cake. Games were played and prizes were won. It was a wonderful first birthday to say the least. Now that one party is over , I'm planning next years hehehe. On that note, wishing everyone who stumbles on Vintage Delights a Happy 2010, may the year be filled with much prosperity, good health, love and creativity.

Cheers, Adla
